Hacktool.Rootkit Problem

  1. Hello,

    I read the sticky threads regarding removing Hacktool.Rootkit, but have had no success. Norton indicates that I have a Hacktool.Rootkit virus. However, I could find none of the malicious processes mentioned in the post (javapanel.exe, taskcntr.exe, xpjava.exe). I don't know if my particular problem has different processes and files associated with it and don't know how to identify them. A HJT log is posted and would appreciate any help as to what I should do next.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate the time you folks give to helping people with technical problems.

    Go to this thread, https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic33967.html
    and follow the LOCKX.EXE instructions. Do the same for POKAPOKA70.EXE

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [stratas] lockx.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [System service70] C:\WINNT\etb\pokapoka70.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [stratas] lockx.exe
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [stratas] lockx.exe

    Fix ALL your O16 - DPF: entries

    Fix O23 - Service: PictureTaker - Unknown owner - c:\fixit\pt\PCTKRNT.SYS (file missing)

    Thank you very much. I did what you recommended and the problem seems to be fixed. I ran RootkitRevealer and nothing seems out of the ordinary. Thank you for your time and your help and your continued dedication. You are an invaluable resource.
